This was an entertaining, short little thriller. A strong teenaged female main character, nasty but believable villains, a tiny little bit of teen romance, and a bit of a mystery for the reader to figure out. Part of me wishes this would have been fleshed out more, because it felt more like a snack than a full meal, but I can't really think what fleshing it out would give it that it doesn't already have. (Maybe more of James-the-roommate?)

In complete honesty, I went into this book with semi-low expectations. I was automatically under the impression that this would be just another cheesy mystery novel directly after reading the summery. Boy was I wrong! This is easily on of the most in depth and thrilling books I have read in a long while. Highly recommend!

Great suspense read. Very difficult to put down. I read it in just over an hour and I was in a complete trance the whole time.

Henry's books offer high intensity in an accessible package, and The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die is no different. It is a suspenseful thriller for the middle school crowd, twisting and turning every which way for the sake of survival!

This title is a fast-paced thriller that keeps you guessing with every twist and turn. The main character suffers from a near complete loss of memory at the start of the book and her understanding of who she is is only further complicated by the web of lies spun publicly by her pursuers. If you can look past some of the less believable aspects of the plot line, this is a great read to cozy up with on a rainy afternoon.
